Going to church, reading the bible, listening to Christian music will not advance your spiritual life. These activities may give you more understanding but until you are ready to lay down your life and take up your cross this leads nowhere.

What I am talking about is the sacrifice of self to advance the cause of Jesus Christ in the world. There is a destiny that God had for each of us that only we can personally discover. We can discover it only by detaching from the world and making ourselves available for the Holy Spirit. By detaching from the world--now you have time--the commodity that most Christians are not willing to give.

Jesus said, "Self-help is not help at all. Self-sacrifice is the way, to finding yourself, your true self. (Matthew 16:25)

"God has planted eternity in the human heart." (Ecclesiastes 3:11)

"Anyone who lets himself be distracted from the work I plan for him is not fit for the Kingdom of God." (Luke 9:62)

"The most important thing is that I complete my mission, the work that the Lord Jesus gave me." (Acts 20:24)

"We have been sent to speak for Christ." (2 Corinthians 5:20)

"We are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus, to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." (Ephesians 2:10)

Daily Meditations And Affirmations - May 15, 2024

Posted 05-15-2024 at 07:05 PM by Albert Finch


"The third time he said to him, ,,, “Do you love me?” ,,, Jesus said, “Feed my sheep. - John 21:17

You have to be the nourishment for other people's souls until they learn to feed on God. Until others learn to draw on the life of the Lord Jesus directly, they will have to draw on His life through you. You must literally be their source of supply until they learn to take their nourishment from God. We owe it to God to become the best for His lambs and sheep, as well as for Him.



God is here with his divine purpose to change our weakness into mighty strength and fruit bearing that remains for His Kingdom. A person who has the love of Jesus flowing through his heart into the lives of others may soar, run, and rejoice; he is free and nothing holds him back.
"See that you walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be not unwise, but understand what the will of God is." - Ephesians 5:15-17

You know there are things you are doing now that are temporary. You are doing them only until you find the thing God wants you to do, the real work you were meant to do. When the fire reaches your core, you will trash all the vestiges of ineffectual, powerless living.


AFFIRMATIONS:

I know that God's Word is the truth -- and the truth that I understand will make me free! (John 8:32)

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me! (Philippians 4:13)

The Lord is my rock. He is solid and does not change. He is my Fortress, surrounding me with protection. He is my Deliverer, always making a way for me. My God, my refuge! (Psalm 18:2)
